poor fellow who didn't know the
difference between wild and tame
ducks, but Guy's notion is that any
fool who can load a gun would
know a wild duck from a tame one.

invitation to the man who killed
them to call again, when he can see

THE COLUMBUS LIBRARY
To the Public.
For the information of all parties in
terested, and the further development of
the case involved, notice is hereby given,
that an organization has been perfected
for the purpose of establishing a Library
and public Heading Room in this city,
and the success of ttiis laudable enterprise
will now materially depend upon the as
sistance and active co-operation of our
Articles of incorporation, including the
Constitution and By-Laws agreed upon in
a public meeting, have been recorded, and
the Executive Committee have since ap
pointed a committee to solicit donations of
money, books, periodicals, or other useful
and essential articles that may assist in
building up and furnishing an institution
which, if initiated and properly sustained,
will prove a credit and of vast benefit to
our city. Over two hum'red dollars have
been subscribed,as a start, and as soon as
a sufficient amount shall be paid or
pledged, a room will be obtained, and an
appropriate selection of books and period
icals procured, and said Reading Room
opened to the public. Our citizens may 1
expect a call, and they should be able to
sec at a glance, that this is not a solicita
tion for a subject of charity of doubtful
propriety, but one for the present and
permanent benefit of our young city and
ita growing populace. Let five times the
amount named be raised if possible, as it
will assuredly prove to be a valuable in
vestment for the public welfare, and he
who contributes most liberally, will never
have occasion to regret the act.
By a provision of the constitution, the
Reading Room will be under the charge
of a librarian, with suitable regulations,
and will be open at all seasonable hours
to the public, without charge. Any one
paying one dollar into the treasury, and
signing the Constitution, becomes a mem
ber of the Association, and entitled to a
voice and a vote in all its proceedings.
Library tickets will also be issued, and
any member or other person on the pay
ment of one dollar, will be entitled to a
ticket, good for one year, that will allow
said person to draw books for stated peri
ods; the proceeds to go towards the need
ful expenses, or to augment the library.
The fees for membership and library tick
ets may be taken from any one's sulwcrip
tion, if desired, or they may be made ad
ditional thereto. While membership is
not essential to secure the prviileges of
the library, yet all who arc favorably dis
poned, and who do not feel able to make a
larger contribution, are earnestly solicited
to subscribe enough, at least, to entitle
them both to membership and the pur
chase of a library ticket, and those who
have more ample means, we trust, will
feel constrained to give in due proportion,
but let no one's oontribution be measured
by his neighbor's purse, property, or free
Now, fellow citizens, this enterprise is
commended to your judgment, and must
rely upon your fostering aid, upon a liber
ality of will and a generosity of purpose
that will cause your hands, in sympathy
with your hearts, to reach your pocket or
check books, and thus enrol your names
as public benefactors. Neither excuses
nor special pleas will fill the bill, for as
citizens whose interests arc involved with
our own, wc need not only your good will
and sympathy, but something tangible and
practical; your names, your influence, and
a portion of your money; and upon your
action will depend the success or failure
of thccfToit. If wc succeed, to you will
all credit be due, and a land-mark of pro
gress will be established in our history;
if we fail from lack of meaus, upon yon
will fall the discredit; but wc trust that
your action will be such as to show, that
no delusive phantom of failure will readi
ly disturb your imaginations or thwart
your nobler impulses.
In a commercial or business point cf
view, while holding out inducements- to
settlers, Columbus should foster a little
pride in keeping pace with her sister
cities of the state, as our educational sta
tus and our facilities for literary culture
will elicit inquiry, ami will be rellected as
it were from the .sign boards of our town,
either to repel or attr.ict intelligent immi
gration. We believe that our general
reputation, as well as the moral and intel
lectual standard of our city, would be ele
vated by a good library and reading-room
in our midst; that a greater love for sci
ence, history, and good social literature
would be acquired, and under judicious
management, that much good, both direct
and reflective, would be produced upon
our entire community thereby.
On behalf of the Executive Committee,
Wm. Buiigess, President.
E. L. Siieiimax, Secretary.
One mean man in a community
can do an immense deal of mischief,
just as one able-bodied man can tear
down more than twenty can build
up. We hear of one neighborhood
in Platte county kept in a continual
stew by the wilful littleness of one
man. Nothing of a public nature
can take place in the neighborhood
without unwarrantable interference
on his part. The public road, the
bridges receive a largo share of his
intermeddling, and in slack times
the school teacher comes iu for a
portion. There are "bullies" of
different kinds, physical, mental aud
moral, so to speak, and they need,
wherever fouud, a similar treatment,
a quiet suub, until they get too
close, and theu a substantial, com
plete, square knock-down. It is
about the only kind of treatment
Ihey will respect. The physical
bully needs to feel the heavy weight
of a better muscle ; the mental bully,
the keen, sharp sword of a brainy
contestant; and the moral bully, the
opening up to the public gaze, in all
the fullness of its enormity, his
inner, hideous nature. These men
are all sensitive to public opinion,
and a good, square knock-down
puts them iu a most ludicrous posi
tion, and breaks the back-bone of
